Dave and Ashley Willis speaking at XO Marriage Conference at Gateway Church in TX MarriageToday

One of the most fulfilling aspects of my life is the privilege I have to encourage people through speaking, teaching and preaching. My wife Ashley and often speak together about topics connected to marriage, faith and family. You can watch one of our marriage talks right here…

I enjoy communicating with a broad audience from educational, corporate, non-profit and ministry backgrounds. Whether I’m preaching a sermon, teaching Public Speaking in a university classroom or presenting at a conference, I always work to craft a message that will blend humor, practical application and inspiration. If you are planning an event where a communicator is needed, I would be honored to work with you and your organization to customize a solution.

My wife Ashley is an extraordinary communicator and frequent speaker at women’s events.
